senator that's done more to help america's heroes adjust to life after the military. that's just one of the reasons why she will be sorely missed. here's another reason, though: kay has fought time and time again to promote tax relief for hardworking texas families. in thehooin the mid-1990's, shed create the so-called homemaker ira to make sure that stay-at-home moms and dads were able to save for their retirement on an equal basis with their counterparts who worked outside the home. i now it is one of her proudest achievements and i'm proud to join with the senator from merrell, senator barbara mikulski, in attempting to rename this ira the kay bailey hutchison spousal ira in her honor, and i hope, mr. president, we can join together and honor senator hutchison by getting that done before we close out our business this year. kay, of course, has always championed the state sales tax deduction, which may not seem like a big deal to others in this carriage carriages but it . but it is a big deal in texas. we don't have a state income tax. but we do pay a state sales tax. and of course
security. in latin america, in africa, in europe and elsewhere. the past decade of war has reinforced the lesson that one of the most effective ways to address long-term security challenges is to help build the capabilities of our allies. we have seen this approach with our counterinsurgency campaigns and iraq and afghanistan, and our counterterrorism efforts in yemen and somalia. we are expanding our security forces assistance to a wider range of partners in order to address a broader range of security challenges in asia-pacific, in the middle east. and as i said, in europe, africa and in latin america. to implement this element of the strategy, the services are retaining the security cooperation capabilities we have honed over a decade of war. and making investments in regional expertise. for example, for the armies new structure, they are able to, in fact, engage on a rotational basis to assist other countries. the entire u.s. government is working to make our security cooperation, particularly for an military sales, more responsive and more effective, to cut through the bureaucrac
the minute money department of corrections, mass murder in america was most severe in 1929. in recent years, there were 32 mass killings in the 1980s, 42 in 9 '90s and 26s in the first decade of this century. according to the department of justice, murders of school age children have declined by 42% in the past 15 years. the latest stats show 1% of the murdered kids died at school. now, that's not to diminish the horrible crimes we have seen in connecticut and other places recently. all americans should understand that violence like that harms america's image throughout the world and we do have a gun culture here. no question about it. if the feds can tighten up gun laws without violating constitutional rights, they should do so. is it legal is one glaring question. how could the mother of the killer have acquired an ar 15 when connecticut has tough gun law? to build a build country, a safer country, we don't need knee jerk reactions after heinous crimes. we need smart solutions. listen to this exchange at the white house yesterday. >> you name one thing the president has done in the last f

think we all know that every income tax in america will pay a higher rate in january 1 unless congress ac acts. so i believe it's important to protect as many american taxpayers as we can. our plan "b," would protect the american taxpayers who make $1 million or less. have all the current rates extended. >> andrea: well, the white house promptly rejected it. >> the alternative here if you think about it with the so-called plan "b" it makes no sense. historic opportunity here to do something that has been set as a goal to reach bipartisan compromise on significant deficit reduction on the order of $4 trillion. talk all the pieces of it and put them together. we are close to being able to achieve that. president demonstrated with obvious willingness to compromise and to move more than halfway. >> andrea: i have to go to you first, dana because you heard the words "obviously." >> dana: obviously. obvious terrorism. it's obvious! obvious. if they think that it's obvious -- i do think they overestimate how much the american people are willing to wait on this. speaker boehner has basically w

%. that is a big number. america, the asset values were destroyed, something like $7 trillion. a lot of that was a bubble. that was popped and resulted -- we have had to manage a difficult situation. even before the bubble popping, there was excess. because the money flows in in a regular amounts, when money is good, everybody feels good. when $14 billion came in, they thought they were king of the mountain and spend it. arnold came in to clean it up. a couple years later, he left town and $26 billion this year. this has been the nature for the last decade, kicking the can down the road. not talking straight. the way it is. the way it is, it is a tale of two cities. there is fabulous wealth and link electronics, inc. model number: pdr-885 software version: 3.0c in some places it would be food or shelter or love. going over the sources of passion. they see all the world for the first time the majority of people everywhere want a good job. they want a job that is above the table. that is 30 hours a week. the real key to that is going to be a local and state government. hopefully the ma
